Inner Child

Fight the bonds with growing older
Listen to the child in your heart
Resist the urge to let it go
Don't let two great things fall apart
Step away from the normalcy
Keep your imagination bright
Run from the creative blocks
That attack you from left and right
Keep finding joy in the simple things
Like a rainbow in the sky
Keep being thankful for living
Yet be unafraid to die
There is this child deep inside
That you can't let society take away
Don't let them kill the creative spark
Without this child it cannot stay
Don't let them strangle you with maturity
And please don't try to grow up too fast
Appreciate life's simple treasures
So you can help your Inner Child last

    Tatianna, I whole heartedly agree with you. I have a poem of the same name in my pages. We should always be that inner child because it the essence of who we really are. Yes, we have to grow up, and we have to go out and get jobs, and maybe or maybe not, even have families. But this doesn't stop us from having childish fun. Why else would we still go to movies, places where we can dance, hang out with the girls, and swing on the swings, or just play on the merry-go-round if we like. We should always be our inner child.

    Love & hugs,

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
